Suggestions from Eureka, MT to Anchorage, AK
« on: July 09, 2020, 10:36:45 pm »
In 2018, I rode across the US and finished at Anacortes, WA, but planning for next summer to start at Eureka, MT, and ride north through Canada to Anchorage. Any roads to avoid? Any campsites to recommend? Any sights to not miss along the way?

Depends on your route.  I would go up the Icefields Highway between Banff and Jasper.  If you go up the Alaskan Highway, stop at Liard Hot Springs, really nice.  If you are going up the Cassiar Highway, try a side trip to Hyder, AK. via Stewart.  Hyder has a really nice bear viewing area at the Fish Creek Observation Site.  Definitely, carry bear spray there.

For service listings on the roads in western Canada and Alaska there is an annual publication called The Milepost which has up-to-date information. We recommend it to folks traveling northward.
